After four-long years of meticulous investigation, it looks like the country's biggest unsolved double murder-mystery case may unfold in the coming days.

The Ghaziabad court Thursday rejected the petition of the Talwars and charged them for murder, conspiracy, misleading the court and destruction of evidence.

According to the court orders today, the parents of the murdered teenager (Aarushi Talwar), dentist couple Nupur and Rajesh Talwar will be tried for murder after the chargesheet is framed.

"They were charged by the Additional Sessions judge under Sections 302 (murder), Section 201 (causing disappearance of evidence of offence), Section 34 (a criminal act done by several persons in furtherance of the common intention) and Section 203 (giving false information about an offence)," the lawyers representing the CBI and the family of Hemraj told IBNS.

"A formal chargesheet will be framed tomorrow," IBNS quoted the CBI lawyer R K Saini as saying.

The CBI prosecutor said that they deliberately "made up" the scene and destructed the evidences to hide their crime.

Meanwhile, Nupur and Rajesh maintained that they were innocent and are being framed by the CBI.

Their lawyer Vijay Pal Singh Rathi alleged that neither "direct" nor the "circumstantial evidences" prove the claim of CBI against the couple.

However, the court has rejected their argument and alleged that they are the prime accused in the murder of both Aarushi and Hemraj.

The pair has been accused of murdering their 13-year-old daughter Aarushi and their domestic help Hemraj in May 2008 at their residence.
